Bone Broth

Bone Broth

Ever since I was little, my mum would always make sure we had broth every night at dinner - chicken, lamb or beef. When we ate with my grandmother, there was always some broth or soup with every meal. As I grew older and learnt about Weston A. Price, I realised the benefits of bone broth and how it has always been a part of our culture.

Bone Broth is very nourishing and healing. The benefits include:

  • shown to alleviate the common cold

  • helps reduce inflammation

  • strengthens bones and teeth

  • improves gut function and in turn affects moods (gut-brain connection)

  • contains gelatin which helps promote stronger, healthier nails, arthritis and joint pain relief, cell protecting, supports insulin regulation.

Ingredients:

  • Choose organic grass fed bones beef/lamb/pork or chicken carcass. Choose bones with marrow and can also add chicken feet

  • 1/2 cup Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar

  • 3 carrots, coarsely chopped

  • 3 celery stalks, coarsely chopped

  • 1 onion or leek

  • 2 cloves of garlic

  • fresh thyme, bay leaves and any other herbs you want

  • 2 teaspoons of Himalayan or Celtic sea salt

 

Directions:

  • Put all of the ingredients in the slow cooker and fill with filtered water.

  • Cook on the ‘low’ setting overnight (for 12-24 hrs or longer). The longer it cooks for the more minerals and collagen are extracted from the bones. 

  • Once cooked, strain the liquid from the bones.

  • Store in the fridge and consume within a week.

  • Extra portions can be frozen and then defrosted as needed.
